Losing Winter is a participatory, socially engaged art project and archive of memories and emotions about the season of winter, using human recollection of weather to provide a glimpse of climate change as it intersects with individual lifetimes. The project was first realized with the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC) in Bucharest, Romania (Romanian title: Pierderea Iernii) through exchanges with local citizens, collaborators, and businesses. At the heart of the project are recordings of narrated memories from Bucharest citizens about a winter from their past. Intertwined with these memories are details of personal, political, and historical events, familial and cultural customs, emerging naturally as a consequence of the particular memory shared. The project also included a series of unique ice sculptures created in response to selected memories which are the subject of Melt, a high resolution video that documents the melting sculptures positioned in various key locations in and around the museum. MNAC is situated in the Palace of the Parliament, the colossal Neoclassical building that was the final act of urban planning by dictator Nicolae Ceausescu in the 1980’s, and across from the newly constructed controversial People’s Salvation Cathedral. Losing Winter / Pierderea Iernii was presented as a multi-media exhibition at MNAC in September 2018.
